Subject: NRPS set from 4-28-71
Just wanted to clear up any confusion that the NRPS set on this recording seems to be similar to their set from the 28th

Subject: OK your April Fool's joke has become tiresome
With a joke banner that boasts of having "re-mastered the entire Grateful Dead collection," the Archive has slowed down all music by some 25% or so while keeping pitch correct. It sounds terrible. OK, you got me for a minute, "LOL."

Please fix it now. Some of us (I'm sure there are others) are just trying to get through another day and hoped to feel a little better here.

Subject: Question about NRPS set ???
As a Duane Allman fan, this has always been one of my favorites. But the three tunes with Duane aside, this show would still be a classic...it is Pigpen at his very best, and this is a nice, clean copy!

The official New Rider set list is over an hour long, starting with Brown-Eyed Handsome man, but most recordings have a shorter NRPS set beginning with Henry and The Weight. Does anyone know which is the correct one for that night? Could the longer one have been an early, all New Riders show and the the shorter one an opening set for the later Dead show? Not that it matters much...both are great New Riders sets, but I'm just curious.

Subject: Probably The Best GRATEFUL DEAD Show In History
THE MUSIC HAS BEEN SET FREE. THE KEEPERS HAVE GIVEN US THE SHOW OF SHOWS. THE UNIVERSE HAS BECOME RICHER THAN IT WAS. THIS IS THE TRUTH ABOUT THE MUSIC THAT CHANGED THE DESTINY OF THE UNIVERSE FOREVER.

Audio Quality: "Excellent"
Mix: Stereo-Phonic Hi-Fi
Performance: Astonishing

Here's what you hear here:

The New Riders of the Purple Sage:

01. Henry
02. The Weight
03. Last lonely Eagle
04. Fun, Fun, Fun
05. Running Back to You
06. I Don't Know You
07. Dirty Business
08. Glendale Train

The GRATEFUL DEAD:

01. Big Bossman (one of the best versions)
02. Loser (one of the best versions)
03. Playing In The Band (superb)
04. Hard To Handle (the best version there is)
05. Dark Star> (religious experience)
06. Wharf Rat (a few audio anomalies)
07. Casey Jones (fresh, energetic & electric)
08. Sugar Magnolia* Duane Allman
09. It Hurts Me Too (classic Pigpen WOW!!!)
10. Beat It On Down The Line (jump'n)
11. China Cat Sunflower (holy moly)
12. I Know You Rider (more moly than holy)
13. Good Lovin'(best version there is)
14. Sing Me Back Home (Jerry's song...)
15. Not Fade Away>
16. Going Down The Road Feeling Bad>
17. Not Fade Away

I love all the breaks in between the songs; it gives us a chance to hear what it was like to be there.

Duane Allman, the lead guitar player for the Allman Brothers plays slide guitar on Sugar Magnolia, it's my favorite version.

4 Pigpen songs makes this show even more special. Pigpen's performances are exceptional.
I wish I was at this show. Well, now at least I can say I heard it.

You can clearly hear the New York City audience screaming for more at the end of the show as if their lives depended on it...scary eh?

When the GRATEFUL DEAD sang to us, "YOU KNOW OUR LOVE WILL NOT FADE AWAY" they meant it and this show proves it 37 years later.

THANKS FOR THE LOVE.

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD. I do.
